Question about 2001 BMW Z3
I basically need everything from the engine pulleys forward (and the crossed bars under the front suspension) but i dont know what those parts are called, so its hard to search for them ! i dont want to run the car, and i dont want to pay to have it towed somewhere to have a mechanic run an estimate when i dont have money to fix it yet. so im trying to just buy the parts one by one and have them installed later. i understand that because you cant see the car yourself its hard to say what all i really need, but every little piece of info helps. thanks!
Try this website: RealOEM.com This lets you put in the details of your car and then lets you access a parts list with exploded diagrams. Below is a list of all the parts in the diagram with their BMW approved name and BMW part number. It also gives the price or the parts in USD. My local BMW dealer gave me the website as it seems to have the same information as he uses. I have found it very useful.

Open the hood. Disconnect the negative (black) battery cable.
Inspect the fan shroud for the accessory belt routing diagram. If the diagram is missing or illegible, use a pen and paper to draw your own diagram before removing the belt. The new belt must be routed around the pulleys exactly as the old one was.
Locate the spring loaded belt tensioner on the front of the engine. There is a small pulley attached to the bottom of the tensioner arm.
Slide the square end of the breaker bar into the square hole in front of the tensioner pulley. Rotate the breaker bar counterclockwise and the entire tensioner will move enough to relieve the tension from the belt. Pull the belt out from under the pulley and slowly let the breaker bar retract.
Remove the accessory belt from each pulley with your hands. Rotate one of the fan blades to the top side of the engine with your hand and pull the belt around it. Repeat this process until the belt is around all of the fan blades. Pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
Route the new belt carefully around each fan blade. Wrap the belt around the crankshaft pulley to begin the belt routing process. Refer back to the belt routing diagram instructions to properly route the new belt around the accessory pulleys.
Turn the tensioner counterclockwise again with the breaker bar. Position the new belt evenly under the tensioner pulley. Allow the tensioner pulley to tighten against the belt. Pull the breaker bar out of the tensioner.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.
Start the engine for five to ten seconds to seat the new belt. Turn the engine off. Visually check that the belt is properly seated around all pulleys.
